How do I join the Healthy Richmond Steering Committee?
Serving on the Hub Steering Committee is a great opportunity to work with people from across our community to reach a shared goal: To improve health and safety for all residents. As a member of the Hub Steering Committee, you will work with residents and other community leaders to guide the process of turning ideas into real action and changes in our city.
We encourage applications from across our community: all ages, genders, sexual orientations, ethnicities, languages, economic condition, educational background, abilities, professional skills, philosophies, and life experiences. Our hope is to call on the great knowledge, history, and energy of our community to implement this project.
Committee members should expect to devote about 10 hours a month to the project, at first, and should be willing to commit to a two-year term of service. Most of your time on the Committee will be spent in meetings, working in small subcommittees to accomplish specific tasks, or in community-based work related to the project, such as meetings with community members, representatives from our community’s key institutions, staff members at The California Endowment or the Hub, or advisers and consultants working with the Healthy Richmond project.
The Steering Committee invites community leaders who are interested in serving as members every two years. Our last recruitment for new members occurred in May 2013.
